Hi @ashishranjan-6375,

For your scenario, there are two ways to migrate data:

  1. Use Azure Data Factory: This is the most recommended method to migrate the data. Configure the source as Couchbase and sink as Azure Cosmos DB SQL API, see the Azure Cosmos DB Data Factory connector article for detailed steps. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/connector-azure-cosmos-db)

  2. Use the Azure Cosmos DB data import tool: This option is recommended to migrate using VMs with less amount of data. For detailed steps, see the Data importer article. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/import-data)

For more information, please visit our official documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/sql/couchbase-cosmos-migration

Hello David,

Thanks for the response much appreciated....

I believe for Couchbase DB, ADF is in preview mode. Is my understanding correct or it is in public view for the data migration from Couch to Cosmos.

And in second option I need one suggestion that how we will export our data, which option will best.

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi @ashishranjan-6375 Thank you for posting your question on Microsoft Q&A.
Azure Data Factory is preferred over the data import tool because this tool has some limitations. It supports migrating/importing smaller size data and doesn’t support all APIs & sources. For large data imports ADF is preferred.
Please mark as accepted answer whenever the information provided was helpful.

Hope that help

Regards,
Oury
